The role of CCS technologies in meeting the challenge of climate change has been gaining increasing support. It is widely recognised that fossil fuels will continue to play a significant role in meeting energy demand globally in the immediate future, and the potential of CCS as a crucial carbon-mitigation technology has been recognised in both EC and UK policy developments.
World Future Energy Summit includes a world class summit, an international exhibition, the Project Village, Round Table Discussions, the Young Future Energy Leaders program, corporate meetings and social events. The Summit represents an unrivalled business platform bringing together project owners and solution providers with investors and buyers from both the public and private sectors.
The Summit will focus on the overarching theme of accelerating solutions to global clean growth and climate change, addressing the broad issues of: finance and scale; public-private partnerships; renewable energy; legislation and policy; cities and regions; transportation; carbon pricing; energy efficiency; and business leadership.
